Samso's Conclusion

In summary, the rare earth sector has a lot of content, and it is generally agreed that each rare earth project is unique. The key factor to consider is whether the project is profitable in the end.

The Jupiter target is a clay-hosted rare earth project that has limited metallurgical research, but it can be considered a standard clay-hosted system. What sets it apart is its logistical aspects, potential grade, tonnage, and unique social license. Dealing with private landowners and existing populations may impact the project's bottom line in the long run. It is important for fresh investors to thoroughly research and understand the rare earth sector to become successful long-term players.

About Venture Minerals Limited

Venture Minerals Limited | featured in Brilliant-Online

Venture Minerals Ltd (ASX: VMS) is dedicated to discovering and developing world-class mineral deposits to meet the global demand for critical minerals vital to the green energy transition.

Venture Minerals Ltd (ASX: VMS) has made a recent discovery at the Brothers REE Project including the Jupiter Clay Hosted Rare Earths Prospect. The Brothers Project includes the Iron Duke JV which hosts the Jupiter Prospect and is a potentially significant REE clay hosted discovery near Yalgoo in Western Australia. Brothers is well located to significant infrastructure including the port of Geraldton, Iluka’s Eneabba Rare Earths Refinery and Lynas Rare Earths currently operating Mount Weld Concentrator.

The Mount Lindsay Tin-Tungsten Project in northwest Tasmania, already one of the world’s largest undeveloped Tin-Tungsten deposits. With the recognition of Tin as a fundamental metal to the battery revolution and Tungsten being a critical mineral, Venture has commenced an Underground Feasibility Study on Mount Lindsay that will leverage off the previously completed open-pit feasibility work, and recently included additional, potential large-scale quantities of tin and boron within the current resource base, and extensively throughout the greater Mount Lindsay skarn system. The tin-borates have not previously been assessed in any mining studies. Borate minerals contain a large amount of Boron, a critical mineral in the solar panel industry. At the neighbouring Riley Iron Ore Mine, the mine is prepared for a quick restart should the market conditions become favourable.

In Western Australia, Chalice Mining (ASX: CHN) recently committed to the second stage of the JV which requires a further $2.5 million of expenditure over the next two years to earn a further 19% interest (for a total of 70%) in Venture’s South West Project.

At the Company’s Golden Grove North Project, SensOre (ASX: S3N) is farming in whilst Venture retains the REE rights, the earn-in includes drilling of the Vulcan High Grade REE Target. SensOre’s proprietary AI technology has already highlighted lithium and copper exploration potential at Golden Grove North.

The Company has a significant Nickel-Copper-PGE landholding at Kulin with two highly prospective 20-kilometre-long Ni-Cu-PGE targets within the Kulin Project, whilst recent exploration has identified clay hosted REE targets.
